Hi guys,


I fish Lake Ontario all the time, where we occasionally stumble upon an Atlantic or two.  Now I've got the itch to try specifically for Atlantic's in Cayuga.  I have never been to any of the finger lakes to fish.  Any suggestions where to launch, and what works best this time of year?


Also, how's the boat traffic?  I am guessing it gets pretty busy around Memorial Day?

I would imagine not much boat traffic memorial day. Water  is still cold and I think most fishing boats will be on Seneca. I do not fish for atlantics specifically but do catch a few fishing for lakers.They can be anywhere so most all the state launches are good. Silver fish fishermen are pretty tight lipped.

Couple days ago I fished Cayuga in the long point , steam plant area.  I took landlocks  30 feet back in the prop wash. 12 to 22 inches.  Spoons about a foot bellow the surface.  2.0 2.4 speed.  This is typical for them.  Also a 19 inch rainbow.  Lakers were 40 to 55 down.on spoons.  I always run a spoon in the wash. Waters cold.  Look for 48 to 55 degree.  55 is almost no where.

    • Flasher Fly - Cayuga advice

      Hey all - plan to hit Cayuga next week sometime - just started trolling with dipsys - hooked into 4 on Canadaguia today - finally broke our skunk! Anyhow, I have spoons already - as I said new to trolling - flasher / flies - any suggestions on what to bring to Cayuga? Salmon would be fun or lakers, or really anything - would be running them behind dipsys. Something I could pick up at field and stream would be great - I don't know all the trolling lingo - so links or pics would be great

    • If you wanted catch small (12 inch) salmon in Sept how would you do it?

      Let’s hypothetically say you were trying to catch shaker kings in Lake Ontario in September, where would you troll? What depth or temperature? Offshore or nearshore? West, east? What baits would you use?   By shaker, I mean the 6” - 12” fish that were either stocked or came out of the streams this spring.  I realize no one targets them,  but has anyone witnessed a pattern where they frequently run into these sized King’s in fall?   Thanks in advance for any ideas, bw
